Description

Blast back to ancient Greece in this new nonfiction series and discover what it would have been like to live there!

When people talk about ancient Greece, things like myths and the Olympics may come to mind. But what was ancient Greece really like? This engaging nonfiction book, complete with black and white interior illustrations, will make readers feel like they've traveled back in time. It covers everything from what ancient Greeks did for fun to the gods and goddesses they worshipped, and more. Find out cool, little-known facts like their strange food superstitions (many wouldn't eat beans because they thought beans contained the souls of the dead!) and how they invented theatre!
